Rob Kiernan's back-pass was intercepted by former Glasgow Rangers striker Steven MacLean, who equalised against Mark Warburton's Ibrox outfit.

Glasgow Rangers fell 16 points behind Old Firm rivals Celtic after drawing their final game ahead of the two sides' Hogmanay meeting.

A trip to fifth-place St. Johnstone was never going to be easy for Mark Warburton's side, who took an early lead through young midfielder Barrie McKay.

However, the three points were not to be after Rob Kiernan's under-hit back-pass was sniffed out by former Rangers striker Steven MacLean, who made the Englishman pay with a well-taken finish past Wes Foderingham.

Kiernan, who may also face retrospective action for an alleged punch on Saints defender Steven Anderson, is perhaps best advised not to log in to Twitter over the next few days.

However, it seems the reported £2 million Fulham target has not been held completely responsible, with Rangers' midfield and even Warburton himself coming under fire from some of the Ibrox faithful.
